4 Days in Rome / Last dayTuesday, June 23, 2015
Our last day in Rome was spent shopping, doing the last of our sightseeing and enjoying Italian food. We began at Via del Corso, which is a major shopping street in Rome with stores like Zara, H&M, Gap, Sephora, Kiko and Accessorize. We spent a few hours there and I managed to pick up some nice clothes and a few makeup products from Kiko.
We really wanted to check out the Pantheon before our holiday was over. It is massive from the outside. It's a beautiful strong historical building but from the inside it wasn't as impressive to me. It was busy, crowded and quite noisy although overall I did enjoy it.

Piazza Navona was the highlight of the day for me. It's a lovely square with two beautiful fountains and an Egyptian obelisk in the middle. I've seen the piazza before in Dan Brown's 2009 thriller Angels and Demons, so it was nice to recognise the place.
It was 30 degrees that day and my mint and vanilla ice cream started to melt the second I left the gelateria.
Everywhere you looked you saw a balcony decorated with plants and flowers.
Rome is such a beautiful city. There is so much to see, good food, a great atmosphere, positive and happy people and lovely hot weather. It was a great trip and I'm happy I got to write down all of my memories and share the pictures with you! I want to visit Rome again although next time I would love to see a bit more of Italy.
